Test of 25 mobile antivirus

The German laboratory tested 25 of the most popular mobile anti-viruses. The research was aimed at assessing the detection of malicious applications, performance and usability of the programs tested.

In the security test, all security packages were designed to scan almost 9,000 infected applications, while in the "usability" test, where the susceptibility to false alarms was checked, the number of secure applications was similar. Almost 6,000 of them came from the Google Play store, and less than 3,000 from other unofficial sources.

Seven manufacturers were distinguished, whose products won the largest total number of points: Antiy, Baidu, Bitdefender, Cheetah Mobile (CM Security), ESET, Qihoo 360 and Sophos.
